I began to make a satirical videogame on Oslo and handmade beer. At one point, I needed an illustrator and a friend recommended that I contacted Edo Brenes, a writer of comic books of Costa Rica, who lived in the UK at the time. Edo also had no experience with video games, but agreed to join the project and work online for a few months until the pandemic began, and he had to go back to his country of origin,” where Arik was arrested because of the pandemic.

“We finally met in real life, we finished the game and we released it in Steam. David Børke’s soundtrack elevated our hobby project at a professional level.”
